Fans of the Boston Celtics remember all too well that their favorite team was without the services of star forward Jaylen Brown in the first round of the 2021 NBA playoffs, with a painful and swift loss to the Brooklyn Nets the ultimate outcome in his absence.
And while it is not fair to hang that loss on Brown’s absence given the other issues facing this team at present, with the Georgia native having already missed nine of the team’s 19 total games played in its 2021-22 schedule and still looking a little affected by a hamstring strain, some analysts are starting to ask whether it is fair to say Brown is a player we should call injury prone.
Once a player picks up such an assessment, they can be hard to shake — even if the player stops getting hurt for some time. On the most recent episode of the CLNS Media podcast “The Garden Report,” the hosts debate whether it might be time to consider the unfortunate designation for the Cal-Berkeley product.
Watch the video embedded above to hear their takes on the overall health of Brown this and past seasons, and see if you agree with their views.
